Punters pay final respects to demolished pub

This is the Charlie Butler Pub in Mortlake today, after developers finally knocked down the historic music venue.

Following an outcry from residents last year, Richmond Council chose to delay the decision to demolish it so it could go back to developers and ask them to justify the loss of the much loved pub.

The Charlie Butler was one of South West London's most traditional 1960s public houses, opening in 1968.

It was the only one in England named after a brewery employee. He was head of the stables for the now defunct site at Wandsworth.

However, in later life, it was embroiled in licensing issues, leaving it open to developers.
